I say this not to invite sympathy or to make any pretense that my life was more difficult and interesting than it actually was; I and my siblings enjoyed a fairly comfortable life as things go.

“I never learned to read girls. I guess I'm girl-illiterate.”
Robert Schell, The Foster Children of Time

“There is zero chance he has reformed. I take that back. If there were a number with a more negative value than zero, a number that conveyed that there was no chance of something happening under any set of circumstances in any universe, that would be the number I would assign the possibility that he has reformed.” (The Mariner King)”
Robert Schell
